Bug report #5187

Intersect tool should inform the user if both layers have a similar attribute fieldname title

Currently the intersect tool does not check whether the the two layers have a similar fieldname title. In one case, we have two vectors with a "NAME_2" field but with different attribute values. The output layer shows only "NULL"s.

IT should at least warn the user if these attribute names exist.

I don't know if this is a bug or feature!
Anyway, How can I replicate?

I tested intersect tool with my layers as follows:

layer A: fields[id, Name_2, Area_2]
layer B: fields[id, Name_2, Area_2]

My output layer has the follow fields:

layer C: fields[id, Name_2, Area_2, id_2, Name_3, Area_3]
with no NULL value as expected!

Can you share your data sample?
